The Hitchcock Rigid Conversion

Mission Statement

This blog has been set up as a record of my attempt to build a cool Bobber style bike out of the Royal Enfield Bullet. With the cost of genuine early British and American bikes and parts spiralling upwards in the face of the current global economic climate, building a retro style custom is rapidly becoming cost prohibitive. Initially, there will be a period of accruing parts and information as the bike I intend to re-create is my daily rider.
I have heard so many horror stories about the Indian made Bullet from people who's mate used to have one, that I have lost count. All I can say is that I have covered over 20,000 miles on mine in the last three and a half years, and feel happy that it is quite capable of doing another 20.
So if you like the idea or just curious, you are welcome to come along for the ride.

Few bits of welding

Here we have the team of welders on hand...seeing i can only use one!
ignition switch in place,sits here just nice and miss's my legs and i hope to feed the wires into the frame
Torsion bar for the brake in position,i don't think you will see much of it as the silencer will be in front of it.the position is so i can use the lever in the upright or down position depending on what i use for the brake,cable or rod?
Mock up of rear light and number plate in vertical position,a tube is welded to the rear of it which i will weld to the frame to run the wires thru.
